Time to open up for people that are vaccinated or young and healthy and if you are afraid to go out then just continue to stay home but don't expect us to do the same
Too many businesses have been unnecessarily damaged by the minority.

Numbers are going down in Tokyo for sure but still same people complaining every day.....

Only 11 years !!
No logic to Japan's justice system.

At least the guy came back the next day and apologized for his behavior. Involving the police is ridiculous and just a cheap way to get some free publicity for the shop, he doesn't deserve to be locked up in the police station for this.

At the very least some staff should have been fired to send a message to others that there are consequences if you mistreat detainees like the way she was.
Absolutely outrageous to only get a verbal warning and their system needs to change asap.

Great idea, I will feel quite relaxed if all around me are vaccinated. No vaccine for no good reason then stay at home please.

It's time for Japan to set up an independent agency to investigate cases like this as the truth will never come out and no one punished properly if they always investigate themselves.
This time at least they are admitting some responsibility but I guess the facts speak for themselves and too much media attention.

If you are afraid of Covid then maybe you should stay home.
I am definitely not afraid to be around people that have been vaccinated.

The only way for things to get back to normal is for the majority to be vaccinated and for those that refuse then please stay at home.

Total BS. If Russia got banned then it should mean no Russians at the Olympics.

Fake tears today, he has more money than he can ever spend but still wants a lot more. Too much greed in the world now,

Let people here have the choice to use AstraZenaca if they want. I would have jumped at the choice earlier in the year or even now if I couldn't have got a vaccine shot.

They only had a year and a half to make some temporary hospitals like China and the UK did last year especially as they know most private hospitals here don't want to deal with Covid patients.
What's wrong with this government, why can't they be smart for once.

The numbers show that the vaccines are working as the majority catching covid are younger people who haven't been vaccinated yet.
-2 ( +12 / -14 )
Too late to do this now they just need to speed up the vaccinations.

Seems the government now realizes the only way out of this mess is to vaccinate the masses. Shame they didn't start earlier.

We could do with some "Good" news for a change!!
That is good news for the people who are vaccinated !

They should investigate the prosecutors office and fire those that decided not pursue this case.
One rule for them and another for us.

So it seems that it's mainly Trump fans that are refusing to get vaccinated so i guess less of them will be around to vote at the next election.

The issue is no one takes the government seriously anymore as they continue to send mixed messages with how we should deal with Covid.
If only they had started the vaccinations earlier a lot of lives would have been saved including a friends life who just died because of late vaccinations here.
Isn't it time for a new approach and leadership ?

Totally unfair to just target bars and restaurants, what about coffee shops, shopping malls, amusement parks and other crowded businesses.
14 ( +17 / -3 )
Why is this even in the news. Just ask !!
8 ( +10 / -2 )
Isn't it too much of a coincidence that one of China's top coronavirus laboratories happens to be located in Wuhan ??
Also if they had nothing to hide why not let WHO investigate properly and unhindered.
25 ( +27 / -2 )
Just targeting bars and restaurants doesn't work, what about the trains, Disneyland, department stores, shopping malls and of course the Olympics as examples. No wonder most people ignore the government requests.
Time to change our leaders here for some smarter people with some balls.
